My 1999 Oldsmobile 88 was my grandparents car and was given to my twin brother and I as our first car with only 42k miles on it!
We have been driving it for about 5 years now and it has 69k miles on it.
They 88 has been outstandingly reliable, we have under $1200 of maintenance into it in 5 years.
We had the common intake leak and the power antenna is stuck up but else it is perfect.
I use to hate how it looked but it has grown on me.
It is factory Crimson Red and I have white strip tires on it, it looks sharp and stands out among today's cars.
The ride and handling is like a marshmallow, but that is often a good thing.
It is plenty quick too!
I also enjoy the huge trunk!

I am buying this car from my mom which whom she bought from Murray Equipment TSC for 1100.00. It is a champaigne color and has 154,150. Big car but it something like the Impala and Old Lumina's on the interior. I like this car a lot but would love to have my old Lumina back.
The Eighty-Eight gets two new exterior colors, Champagne and Evergreen, and the LS model gets the option of white-stripe 16-inch tires. Oh, wait. Oldsmobile is celebrating the nameplate's golden anniversary with a special 50th Anniversary Edition Eighty-Eight. It has 16-inch aluminum wheels fitted with 215/65SR blackwalls, a highly contented leather interior package and special badging finished in, what else? Gold.
